UGH! I used a Scripsit catridge and tape as my first word processor. Had to make at least three copies every time you saved something (save three times) just to make sure one of the saves would work when you loaded next! The third time I lost some work was when I decided I just HAD to have a disk drive, no matter what the cost! I was in Okinawa at the time. Found a CoCoist who had a spare drive on the AF base, and was willing to sell! I had to mail order a controller, but I had that old Model 1 full height single sided floppy and was happy to have it! ;>

I think he might have fared better if he had used a CoCo with the
Scripsit cart to do his stuff. Now, thinking about it, a CoCo 1 or 2,
the Scripsit cart, a tape recorder and a good dot matrix printer is
all that is actually needed to do some no frills word processing -
just about what is required to write up a very nice résumé :-)
